Managing logistics business and policy for integrated sustainable logistics operations

Wednesday 5 September - Friday 7 September 2018

Call for papers deadline: 27th April 2018

The 23rd Annual Conference of The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, Logistics Research Network (LRN), will take place Plymouth University.  

As re-shoring, regionalisation and developments in data management reshape global logistics systems; logistics and supply chain managers face unprecedented challenges.  The 2018 Conference theme will focus on how researchers can assist managers in shaping logistics business and policy to promote integrated, sustainable operations.

The Conference will showcase the latest research in logistics and operations management, international shipping, trade, supply chain and procurement management available to industry professionals. The LRN Conference organisers welcome researchers and practitioners from diverse logistics and supply chain areas, and in all sectors, to publish their research work and industrial case studies.

Logistics Research Network Annual PhD Workshop 2017

The 2018 LRN PhD Workshop will take place on the morning of Wednesday 5th September. It is aimed at doctoral students or those about to embark upon doctoral studies. The half-day workshop promises to be exciting and inspiring and will provide newcomers to LRN with the opportunity to settle in to the conference and meet new friends.

This workshop provides a unique opportunity to network with students from national and international universities; share the challenges of doctoral training with like-minded peers and benefit from the experiences of leading supply chain/logistics scholars: Professor Edward Sweeney (Supply Chain Design and Integration), Dr Elizabeth Jackson (food supply chain systems) and Dr Anthony Gallagher (Marine Environmental Management).

The objectives of the workshop are:

  • To bring together research students from different universities and departments
  • To explore issues relating to doctoral research, particularly common themes affecting doctoral students around the world
  • To provide advice and encouragement to doctoral students (but not supervision!)
